David de Gea, the former star of Manchester United, could make a shocking move to Barcelona.

According to reports, Barcelona is considering acquiring former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

After a fruitful 12-year tenure, De Gea left United in the summer.

There were many questions during his final season at Old Trafford on whether he was a good fit for Erik ten Hag’s style of game, which demands goalkeepers to be adept with the ball at their feet and take part in playing out from the back.

Andre Onana was chosen instead of De Gea after that decision was made.

Thus far, Onana’s time at United has not been easy. De Gea has been content to bide his time in the meanwhile, waiting for the ideal opportunity.

The Spaniard reportedly declined several offers from the Saudi Pro League.

According to a recent rumor that The Peoples Person reported, Newcastle is eager to add De Gea to their roster following Nick Pope’s shoulder injury.

The former United goalkeeper is reportedly eager to complete a shocking swap to St. James’ Park.

As per Mundo Deportivo, De Gea is also being considered by La Liga powerhouse Barcelona.

According to the Spanish daily, the Blaugrana might have to hire a top goalkeeper to make up for Marc-André ter Stegen’s absence, as he is expected to miss many weeks while recovering from an injury.

Xavi’s team currently appears to have complete faith in Inaki Pena, Ter Stegen’s backup, but they may try to acquire De Gea if the situation calls for it.

Undoubtedly, De Gea’s primary draw is his status as a free agent, which means he won’t require a transfer fee.

The 32-year-old has not yet made a firm decision about where he wants to take his career, according to Mundo Deportivo.

De Gea will need to take a pay that guarantees Barca abides by Financial Fair Play laws and regulations if he is in fact in favor of a move to Camp Nou. Whether the player, who previously made almost £375,000 a week at United, would agree to such terms is anybody’s guess.
